Biomaterials and Medical Device Testing
Biomaterials are referred to as any substance, material or technology that is engineered to be able to interact biologically for medical usage. Biomaterials can be natural or synthetic. They are used therapeutically to treat, repair or replace a function in the human or animal body. There is an increasing use of biomaterials in areas that include healthcare, regenerative medicine, dentistry, tissue scaffolds, wound care, cosmetics and implantable devices.
At 5D we are involved in evaluating and testing biomaterials for different materials that are used in medical devices including skin and wound care, dentistry, orthopaedics, personal care including cosmetics and veterinary medicine.
